ABSTRACT  
In this paper, we describe the significance of critical reflection in teacher 
education, a process in which teachers examine how their personal values and beliefs 
affect teaching and learning. We cite compelling excerpts from the reflective 
journals of teacher candidates who chronicle experiences of learning, interacting 
and making meaning in a process which highlights the dual role of reflective 
writing  that of both a record of transformative experiences and also as an agent 
of change itself.
